North St. Paul Public Art Participation Process Proposal: Growing Capacity to Create Place and Build Community.

Ferber, Nancy, Michael Krantz, Erin Garnaas-Holmes, and Hang Su.

Produced by students in PA 5253: Planning Participation Processes, fall 2013 (Instructor Carissa Schively Slotterback, Humphrey School of Public Affairs) as part of the 2013-2014 Resilient Communities Project partnership with the City of North St. Paul. 

North Saint Paul is looking to engage residents of all ages and demographics by better incorporating public art into the community, instilling a greater sense of community pride. The community once had an Arts Council that has gone dormant in the last few years, and is hoping to re-engage the community and revitalize the downtown and neighborhood districts through public art.

During the fall 2013 semester, students in an Urban Planning course focused on public participation processes designed a participation process for developing a public art plan, proposed a strategy for facilitating long-term community engagement around public art, and identified strategies to reengage the previous city arts council. This is one of 2 reports from this course. The second report is CURA call number RCP-058.
